How I feed Nori - with photo's

I can't seem to come up with a simple explantion of my nori folding so here it is is pictures.

I start by folding several sheets in half, first on one side, then the other to make a crease. I then tear the sheets along the crease so I end up a small pile of half sheets. I save these in the bag till I'm ready to one to the tank.

So now I have a half sheet which is a rectangle. I fold that in half making a sqare. .

Next I fold the square to make a triangle. Holding the point of the traingle I bring the oposite ends together to form a smaller triangle. This then goes into the clip on open side near the point of the triangle.

Or, you could just roll it up tightly and rubber band it to a rock. Either way hold the nori together much longer, keeping most of it from floating around the tank.

That's it? lol Where's the nori origami? Can't you at least make a cool fish or something? Anyone can make a nori thumb football.

If I had only thought to describe it as a Nori thumb football I would have saved all that time taking the pictures

Someone else will have to make all the nice origami shapes. I never could get the hang of that.

Scott, that's my Sailfin tang turned sideways in the last photo.
